I thought Dutch films could not sink any deeper...
I must say, I didn't have high expectations when I saw the film and even the expectations I had, were shattered.
I really enjoyed the sketches of the first two seasons (which at first weren't aired on TV, only on the internet (http://www.flabber.nl/)). These were really good. The sketches of the third season which were aired on Comedy Central in the Netherlands were not as good, but still made me chuckle from time to time. Then came the film New Kids Turbo. I did not expect a film made from characters out of sketches to be a success, and it really wasn't.
Okay, the actors played their roles relatively OK, but the entire film sucked. I see the resemblance with the 90's culture in Noord-Brabant (I grew up near Maaskantje in the 90's) and that's about the only positive thing about New Kids Turbo.
I didn't laugh once during the entire film, which is not a good thing, considering that it was supposed to be a comedy. Furthermore the storyline was really bad (there was no story). Halfway through the film I was thinking about turning it off, alas I did not. The entire film consists of cursing, shooting, and more cursing. Not really my idea of a fun time. Everything in this film is exaggerated, which is not actually a bad thing, but it is in this case when the entire youth of Holland is pretending to be a 'new kid'.
All in all, my advice to you is: do not see this film! There are a lot of much better Dutch films! I really hope they decide to not make a sequel...
